Protect Your Facility from Fires

Few things are more dev­as­tat­ing to a facil­i­ty than a wide­spread fire. When flames get out of hand, they have the poten­tial to destroy a build­ing and its assets, dam­age sur­round­ing prop­er­ties and struc­tures, and threat­en the lives of those in close prox­im­i­ty. For these rea­sons, the U.S. fed­er­al and state gov­ern­ments have a num­ber of fire safe­ty codes in place that facil­i­ties must strict­ly fol­low. Fail­ing to meet these require­ments can lead to severe legal penal­ties for a busi­ness.

More impor­tant­ly, though, neglect­ing to main­tain your fire and safe­ty sys­tems puts your peo­ple and prop­er­ty at risk. Fire and safe­ty sys­tem facil­i­ty main­te­nance is a cru­cial invest­ment for your enter­prise. The Budd Group is proud to include these ser­vices in our main­te­nance offerings.

What Fire and Safety System Maintenance Requires

In addi­tion to high-tech fire alarm sys­tems, ear­ly sup­pres­sion sprin­klers, and emer­gency shut­down pro­to­cols, mod­ern facil­i­ties ben­e­fit from fire­proof paints and coat­ings, video image smoke detec­tion, and more.

Here are the key aspects of what our fire safe­ty experts do at The Budd Group:

  • Reg­u­lar Inspections
  • Test­ing Safe­ty Measures
  • Pre­ven­ta­tive Main­te­nance and Repairs
  • Instal­la­tion of New Fire Safe­ty Fea­tures and Devices

Fire and Safety System Maintenance Services: The Budd Group Difference

While fire codes and reg­u­la­tions are high­ly stan­dard­ized and manda­to­ry across the board, every facil­i­ty is unique and there­fore requires a cus­tomized approach to fire and safe­ty main­te­nance. At The Budd Group, we don’t deploy car­bon-copy main­te­nance solu­tions for our clients. Instead, we cre­ate indi­vid­u­al­ized plans that are opti­mized for each facil­i­ty and its needs.

No matter your specific needs, you can rely on The Budd Group to:

  • Per­form peri­od­ic visu­al inspec­tions of all fire safe­ty equip­ment to ensure opti­mal sys­tem per­for­mance.
  • Con­duct reg­u­lar tests of all rel­e­vant equip­ment to make sure every com­po­nent of every device works just as it should in the event of a real fire.
  • Oversee pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance to keep your facil­i­ty from need­ing major repairs in the future, and ensure that all fire safe­ty sys­tems are ful­ly func­tion­al at all times.
  • Install new fire safety devices and take steps to main­tain their func­tion like all the rest.

Fre­quent­ly Asked Ques­tions about Fire and Safe­ty Sys­tem Main­te­nance Services

How Can I Prevent Fires at My Facility?

There are many ways to not only prevent a fire from starting in your facility but also to mitigate its destruction should one take place. Fire prevention methods include proper cleaning and maintenance practices, thorough training of all staff on fire safety, monitoring potential fire hazards at all times, and more. Fire protection includes both passive and active measures. Passive fire protection, such as fire-resistant barriers and fireproof coatings, mitigates or stops the spread of fire without further intervention. Active fire protection refers to active measures to detect flames or stop them from spreading, such as fire extinguishers, automated sprinklers, and smoke detectors.

How Often Should I Inspect Fire Safety Equipment?

You should inspect all of your fire safety equipment and components at least once per year. That said, certain features, such as fire extinguishers and smoke detectors, may require more frequent inspection based on relevant OSHA (and other) regulations.

What Should I Do in the Event of a Fire?

The most important thing to do in the event of a facility fire is to ensure all occupants quickly and orderly exit the building and remain at a safe distance from the fire. If authorities aren't contacted automatically, those in charge must call 9-1-1 to alert firefighters. It is crucial to have a fire safety plan (including a legible map, clear exits, etc.) in place and run periodic drills with all occupants to ensure everything knows what to do should a real fire occur.

Testimonials

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
